Subject: PhD Position in Software Engineering for Robotics at the IT University of Copenhagen


Dear colleagues and friends, 

Please, distribute the announcement to potentially interested students and graduates in your network!

Thanks in advance, 



PhD position in ROS-Industrial quality-assured robot software components 

The IT University of Copenhagen invites highly motivated individuals to apply for a PhD position starting in 1 May 2017or soon thereafter.  

The position is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 ROSIN project - “ROS-Industrial quality-assured robot software components”. The project includes five European research and development partners besides ITU. The goal of the project is to improve the quality of the open source robot operating system (www.ros.org <http://www.ros.org> ) by adapting state of the art software quality techniques to an open source context and implementing them together with the community. 

The PhD candidate will be expected to collaborate in developing software quality engineering practices and tools for and with the ROS-Industrial community. You will have the opportunity to both explore how to embed tools in a large project in useful and effective ways, as well as to develop innovative project-specific test & scanning tools (including model-based tools).  

The PhD project will result in a dissertation addressing Automated Testing and Scanning and how to embed software quality tools and techniques in Open Source development. 

The ideal candidate will have training in computer science with interest in test and in Model Driven Development or programming language technology. You need to exhibit strong interest in making tools useful for software engineers, and to engage in empirical action research that increases the chances of adoption.  

Knowledge of different software engineering practices are taken for granted. Interest in cooperative and human aspects of software engineering and openness for applying qualitative research methods to explore these aspects is crucial as well. 

Qualification Requirements 

The following qualifications are required: 

*	3 year programme: candidates should have an MSc (or equivalent) in computer science or software engineering which includes courses in model driven development or programming language technology
*	4 year programme: candidates should have a BSc in computer science or software engineering which includes courses in model driven development or programming language technology 
*	High level of oral and written proficiency in English
*	Candidates who can document expertise in qualitative research and/or relevant practical experience with open source development will be prioritized

The application must be in English and must include: 

*	A cover letter;
*	A statement of purpose, which includes a project description for the PhD project, providing evidence of independent thinking novelty and originality, and a state of the art grasp of the targeted research field matching the project description above (This text should be maximum 5 standard pages long/ca. 2400 characters per page, including spaces, references and notes)
*	Documentation of academic degree(s); grade transcripts that documents outstanding academic achievement
*	Curriculum Vitae, which must include names and contact information of two professional/academic references
*	Applications may also include one relevant scientific publication written by the applicant, and/or a portfolio of practical work, and/or the applicant's master thesis if relevant. Letters of recommendation can also be included in the application 

It is understood that even highly qualified applicants will satisfy these requirements to varying degrees, for example because of differences in publication cultures in various research fields. 

The IT University may use shortlisting in connection to the recruitment process. In case of shortlisting, the Head of Department selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the hiring committee after the application deadline. All applicants are notified whether their application has been passed for assessment. The shortlisting of candidates for assessment is based on the criteria in the job posting.  

Early contact with our faculty staff is strongly encouraged.
